For security reasons, the FCDO provides headcount detail in bands. The FCDO was formed on 2nd September 20, with Legacy Departments continuing to use legacy systems for recording staff in the interim. People in former DFID roles are recorded at Country level with no ability to report at Post level currently available. Therefore the data provided contains former FCO headcount only.
As at 31 October 2020, the number of Diplomatic Posts in each headcount band is set out as follows:
No. of Posts with a UKB headcount in the band
Fewer than 10
Data does not include Posts where there is no UK-Based presence.
